ESPN, Hank Williams Jr.

I was watching The Daily Show last night and I guess they pulled the Monday Night Football theme and videos because of what he said on Fox & Friends. Not that I really care about what he said, but my Mom was in town and I got her in as an extra and was an extra for a bit. I haven't even tried looking for her or myself. However I am wearing a white Modern Camaro hat so if you see me awesome. I usually get to photograph things like this but they had a very strict policy about who can do what. I am working on photos for the other ESPN College Gameday shoot with Cowboy Troy and Big & Rich. My Mom was there a lot longer and said Hank was really nice to everyone.

Garry Jones, who is the behind the scenes video, is really cool dude and spends all his time and money on classic cars. Here are some from another shoot.

Meh, HWJ is a has been now. Did you SEE that interview? OMG.

ESPN acted like azz monkeys, or at least the butt pirates that made that decison did. If they didn't want the opening theme, that's fine. It's not like they haven't used it for what, 20 years now. But I truly believe their action was retaliatory in nature, which makes them look just as f'n stupid, too. Just as well, I don't watch espn since I have other means to get my sports fix.

2010_5thGen, Big & Rich and Cowboy Troy where all good people. Everyone was really busy, and you don't approach talent, even if they are taking a break, but where down to Earth with people while they where working.

ESPN acted like goofs, it was stupid.

This politically correct society we live in is B.S. He spoke up, said it was a bad choice of words pretty much. Move on people and don't be so **** sensitive.

What ever happened to the phrase "sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me"

Suck it up America.
